Woolly Snow Friends.....

Finished my little snow quilt,
a few more pages 
to put on the computer
&
then we can go on vacation!
Well after the quilt show next week.....
Got my house cleaned from 
corner to corner,
more furniture around,
painted a cabinet,
moved quilts around,
tried to make me a 
honest to goodness offce,
(haven't succeeded in that yet),
got weeds pulled,
knitted myself a half of sweater
in the evenings,
and even cooked some nice dinners
for the poor neglected husband....
I think those pills are working!
Happy weekend to you all!!!

Wednesday......

 Got my quilt back
from Miss Laura, the quilter,
,
haven't had time to even
trim the excess batting off.
Had to get a nice big order off
to the distributor today 
but
tonight I can start the binding.
I asked for swirls 
&
I got them
but
I also got some Christmas trees,
holly leaves 
some other pretty things.
I hope you are having a nice
end to your summer!
We warmed back up here so
we are still enjoying our walks in the evenings.
Now the tomato plants decide to
pump out lots of tomatos!
If I were smart I would cook up
some nice sauce for winter 
but no time for that.
Next week is the Boise Quilt Show
I will be there with all 
my new quilts.
Lets hope there are a lot of nice ladies
to visit with this time!
Have a great 
rest of your week!

Is Fall In The Air At Your House???


I packed summer away
&
got fall started
at my house....
I wasn't ready for summer
to be over,
I so enjoy walking in
the evening.
Been on a diet for about
6 months 
wasn't losing any weight,
found out last week
my thyroid wasn't working,
already in a week I feel better
and can get in a smaller size jean.
These are the very first pills
I have ever taken so they make 
me feel a little wonky - don't you love that word-
but not sure how to describe how I feel yet....
The snow people are off to the quilters 
today!
I tried to make a checkerboard edge but it was tooooo
busy but they will get a nice RED binding.
If you notice there is a lot of nice 
cream fabric for some awesome quilting....
I ordered some fabric from
Buggy Barn a week ago 
yesterday got the sad email that
they are closing...
I love all their patterns and fabrics.
I always wanted to go to their store 
but now it won't be there anymore...
Someone asked me why I don't
have any of my little designs sitting 
around in my cabinets.
I try to keep them busy at your local
quilt shop doing their own little
shows, right now they are
in Colorado at a brand new
woollie shop there.
And
you should hear about all the wool
she has!
I would love just to go and 
see it all in person....
You all have a good rest of the week!
I'm off to do some drawings for
a new fall quilt......

Woollie Cuteness.....

 The embroidery
work is done and everyone
has a twinkle in their
eye
&
a smile....
now I have 
to sew the quilt together
and wait patiently
for the quilting
to be done...
Snowpeople 
are just the best,
I wonder why,
maybe because they
almost always 
have a smile
and maybe a treat
for someone special.....
goodness her hat
is very bright in the picture...
love that reindeer....
I think I figured out the border....
I leave you with this picture,
my favorite one,
only I know 
whats in that bag
of reindeer food....
Have a terrific holiday weekend!
No snow anywhere around,
hopefully you will have great
weather to get out and about!!!

Woollie Snow People.....

 Snow people are SO cute,
as long as they are on
my quilt 
&
not in my yard.....
 I am so wanting to 
sew this quilt 
together now but
of course, I ran right
out of green thread again....
I'm a little embarrassed to ask
the kind ladies at 
The Gentle Art 
to send more so I placed 
a quick order online,
should be here tomorrow,
and then I can sew those
happy little trees down....
Can you see the little snow bunny
on the left?
Maybe by the end of the week
it will be ready for the quilter.....
Happy Monday!

Sunday afternoon......

Meet Mr. T.C. Snow,
yes
Mr. Snow himself.....
I just realized he needs buttons 
on his shoes...

I promised myself I was 
going to be good this
year and not decorate for fall
until September 1st
BUT
I just heard the sounds of football
coming from the den,
so does that open the door
for decorating???
Its so nice here today, 80
and nice big white fluffy clouds
floating overhead,
it would be just so perfect 
to get all those bins
out and make the house
all cozy for fall....

I hope you all are having a 
great day!

 On my walk this morning
I happen 
to glance into our
neighbor's backyard
 and saw these 
beautiful sunflowers!
Just look at this one,
I would have loved
to have seen it when it was completely
covered in yellow....
 Happy little flowers....
 I have red flowers all
over the front yard,
these are going up the front
sidewalk....
 Little roses,
well when Fish Fertizler 
is applied they take over 
the flowerbeds....
 Its a little cooler now so 
maybe these flowers
will bloom a bit more...
 They don't like that really 
hot afternoon sun....

 My sunflowers,
a little small but pretty...
 Next year I will have to 
try some larger varieties...
 The dog is comfy,
watching me stitch....
Here it is the weekend,
I hope you all have a great one!

Thursday afternoon.....

Are you all having a good week?
I have been enjoying my 
veggie gardens and flower gardens,
walking my doggie
and even cooked for the husband....
I have a few free hours
so I dug out my snowmen 
and its time to give them 
some smiles!
The cakestand quilt block is my
very favorite so they 
will be surrounded by lots of little blocks.
Not sure what to do with the border yet 
but
I'm sure I can figure it out.
Husband plays tennis in the morning
so 
I can stitch away....
Next time you see these guys,
they should have
twinkling eyes and big smiles!
